A wonderful tool
An absolutely extraordinary dictionary, which lists French words and for each gives synonyms and lists expressions that commonly appear alongside it: adjectives, nouns, verbs, phrases.
My judgement: invaluable for first-year university students of French, who will learn the true language of the French. To be used inversely by final-year students as an effective means of avoiding clichés...
The fact that it is aimed at German-speakers is neither here nor there.
I had to downsize my library drastically on retirement, but Reum was one book I held on to.
